The first thing everyone notes about this film is that it's Jon
Stewart's directorial debut... and he did a great job. His
characteristic humor is definitely present and rightly downplayed in
deference to the serious subject. It flourishes when necessary, and
when it does, his wit is as sharp as ever.
Stewart took some chances. Most importantly, he set the film in English
instead of Persian with subtitles. While this brings a broader audience
it diminishes the film's authenticity a bit. It's a calculated
cost/benefit decision that I reluctantly agree with. The story is
important and should reach as many people as possible. Still, he could
have mixed in more Persian for a slightly better balance.
The language decision also opened the door to casting non-Persian
actors, particularly the lead. Gael García Bernal played his highly
nuanced character superbly but the role could have gone to one of many
talented and available Persian actors. They would have added to the
film's authenticity without sacrificing its artistic merit.
Once we get past these relatively minor language and ethnicity issues
with the actors we find they are realistic and believable. To Stewart's
(and Maziar Bahari's) credit, the Iranian officials are not the usual
flat, black and white caricatures we love to hate in mainstream media;
they are dynamic, regular people, crazed and ignorant to us, but
"normal" in their own world. As Bahari said in an interview, even his
torturer saw what he did as "a job", with benefits and overtime. This
shifts the focus onto the corrupt institutions of the Iranian regime
instead of mere personalities that can be summarily dismissed.
By countering the norm for demonizing all things Iran-related,
Rosewater sets itself apart as a uniquely thoughtful, fascinating,
important and relevant film.
